  1. Sessa - Facts and Impairment - FINAL-2024-03-01T17-14-59.427Z.pdf (Thanks Pixilated, it took me a few goes with a few different browsers to decode that link). So I guess that's probably the end of his association with MMA?

    Legalisation of kratom

    In recent years the WHO and FDA both determined that Kratom was not a drug of concern. So that's encouraging. There have been copious studies on Kratom's (relative) safety since the TGA scheduled it as a poison in 2003. Not to mention, a synthetic opioid epidemic. I think it's only one of two active alkaloids, mitragynine, that's included in the poisons schedule.

    Help with identifying cactus

    Looks like Cereus peruvianus (not Tricho-), Peruvian apple cactus or similar.
  5. Mescaline and LSD, but not psilocybin, enhanced circulating oxytocin. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41386-023-01607-2
  6. Foliar variability ... pair of heart-shaped leaves from a NL clone.

    RDT for AU gov?

    How would the drug testing regime be enforced, i.e. what penalty? I can only imagine the scandal of a female MP being tested positive for alcohol - versus her male counterparts like Barnaby Joyce, whose approval rating is still being shored up by a protectionist mainstream media. I'm not sure what the parliamentary rulebook says about drunkenness or illicit drug-taking. But there'd be no point in testing if there weren't any consequences. Furnishing Kirrabilly House with one of the world's best-stocked wine cellars probably doesn't help, or set a good example. On the PM's salary, he/she/it can afford to buy their own.

    After a few plants in Perth

    I'd appreciate the Gumtree link, a few Perth people I know would be interested.
  10. A "mere" 61 species documented in this study of S. African childhood diseases, of an estimated 30000 plants known to traditional healers. The authors point out that the cost of western medicine is prohibitively high, which has led to a resurgence of interest in traditional plant medicines. The study itself does not associate the use of traditional plant medicine with better or worse health outcomes (such as child mortality rates) in rural areas. But I think one of the study's implications is that, maybe not all of these traditional remedies are effective. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0282113#pone-0282113-t003
  11. Yet another reason why the people should be allowed to grow their own mushrooms at home. Safety from predatory therapists and venture capitalists.

  13. "We have been informed today that Dr. Ben Sessa has been summoned to appear before the General Medical Council’s (GMC) Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) in the UK regarding alleged misconduct. The hearing is scheduled to commence on February 29, 2024. Dr. Sessa has stepped aside from his duties with Mind Medicine Australia pending the outcome of this hearing. Mind Medicine Australia was not previously aware of these allegations or the GMC investigation" https://cpat.mindmedicineaustralia.org.au/ See also: https://awaknlifesciences.com/awakn-response-to-dr-sessas-medical-practitioner-tribunal https://www.mpts-uk.org/hearings-and-decisions/medical-practitioners-tribunals/dr-benjamin-sessa--feb-24
  14. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2024/feb/11/a-raft-of-unanswered-questions-remain-as-australias-first-psychedelic-therapy-clinic-opens You've no idea how fucking furious I am at Mind Medicine Australia, the TGA, et al. In a SMH article today, the doctors are gloating that they've got the pure MDMA, the implication being, they're fine with ravers dying from impure ecstasy - "we've got the pure stuff, and we're not sharing" - there has to be some kind of organised revolt against the monopolisation of psychedelic experience. MMA has even roped in Gabor Mate as one of its course instructors, wallowing as they are in $15M of taxpayers' money, and laughing all the way to the bank. Absolutely fucking obscene.

    Anti-viral CBD

    Sounds familiar. mRNA "vaccine" was the easiest answer, and biggest schtick of them all.
